Tyler Henry has been blessed with the super power to connect with the deceased relatives of NBC/Universal show cast members. It’s a highly focused psychic skill. Wouldn’t serve you much good cleaning up at the racetrack. Or solving crimes for that matter. He’s done neither. Just making basic cable celebrities cry upon learning their dead grandma wants them to be happy.
The show lead-ins mention repeatedly that Henry’s never told in advance who he’s going to read. The element is designed to assure you he’s not read anybody Wikipedia page before he suddenly knows the name of their dead brother. If you think about the element of surprise in the context of a psychic, it’s plainly ludicrous.
Henry’s primary skill is looking like a middle school boy with a note from his mom that he couldn’t do P.E.. Also, some basic cold reading techniques and editing down ninety minutes of tape into three minutes of, how did he know that snippets. He seems downright supernatural. For added effect, the relatives and entourage is now filmed watching the reading off camera while holding their hands over their faces in gasps. These are the people who end up swindled of all their earthly possessions by Florida based call center scams.
Khloe Kardashian met up with the E! channel’s parlor trick twink for reading. For all of Kardashian’s dead relatives and ancestors, Henry happened upon the one who happened to be famous. It’s possible celebrities get better signals in the afterlife. Rather than use the supernatural bridge to Dead Bob Kardashian to confirm that O.J. killed Nicole and that he abetted by hiding the murder weapon, Dead Bob simply wanted his daughter to know that he died in hospice without her present to relieve her of the burden of seeing her father pass. If you’re forced to watch more than one Tyler Henry reading, you’ll note he says this to everybody with a dead parent. How many people watch their parents die before their eyes?
It’s quite possible Khloe Kardashian believes this all to be true. Many of these gullible and emotional guests break into tears. None of them are good actors, so let’s assume they feel it’s real and aren’t the kind of people to ask too many critical questions. Considering Khloe put her head through a windshield as a teen and suffered head trauma, you’d think somebody might step in and prevent the brain damaged girl from being emotionally hustled. This would be the point in your life when you realize you have thirty people around you at all times, and none of them care about you as a person. Didn’t need to talk to any dead people to figure that out.
